The recycler’s main goal was to simplify data transfer in the facility. The E300 was a better choice for the network, as it could efficiently synchronize data between installed machines and devices.
The modular design of the E300 electronic overload relay allowed the recycler to tailor the device for their application’s exact needs. On-device settings like network address configuration, restoring factory default setting and security settings provided additional advantages.
This solution was easy to integrate, since many other Rockwell Automation products were widely used in the facility. Using products from one supplier helped to ensure reliable data transfer, avoiding gateway devices to synchronize data between devices, and ensuring that the recycler could fully realize the benefits of integrating a single intelligent motor control system.
Along with the E300 electronic overload relay, nine sets of SMC Flex soft starters were installed. The modular design aided in installation and commissioning, and the built-in backlit LCD display with flexible communication provided advanced monitoring, performance, diagnostics and protection.
Built-in current and voltage protection provides enhanced power monitoring and diagnostic capabilities without additional monitoring equipment while enabling ground fault detection. The simplified application improved setup efficiency and process optimization.
